GDPR. What does it mean for app owners?

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union. It’s legislation which aims to protect the privacy of EU citizens.  


What do App owners need to know?

The full regulations (and e-privacy directive) have not yet been announced. However what is clear is that if you collect ANY information on your users – you need clear procedures in place for how you handle that data. If you handle data from users based in the EEA (EU, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) then you will need to comply.  

What Bitqueen can do for you.

Bitqueen keeps a full audit trail so you can track who opted in to what. This helps you prove you have permission to process your user data. Also If you are looking to monetise your data Bitqueen will help you to do so without breaking the rules under GDPR. By selling data through Bitqueen’s portal you guarantee that there is a full and actionable trail for data. If a user opts out from anything later Bitqueen will purge their data from any partners that were processing it.
